A couple months ago I came across another great podcast. This one is done by a company called PreparedEx – www.preparedex.com and on Twitter @preparedex. They link to their podcast from their website but you can also find it in the iTunes podcast listing. They are only seven episodes in, and most episodes are about a half hour long, so you can catch up pretty quickly. They generally post two episodes a month, which is excellent frequency.
PreparedEx is a consulting firm specializing in preparedness exercises. Yes, they are technically a competitor of my company, but from what I’ve seen and heard, they are quite capable and do some really cool stuff.
The host of their podcast is Robert Burton, who is the company’s managing director. Robert has some great counterterrorism creds and facilitates the podcast well. What I love most about this podcast is the interview format. Nearly every episode focuses on an interview, and they have gotten some great subjects – from state emergency management directors to corporate security specialists. The interviews offer excellent insight and are very conversational and easy to listen to. They cover topics in emergency management, homeland security, and business continuity.
Go check them out and enjoy!
